KOPS is the Institutional Repository of the University of Konstanz. As a document server, it offers members of the University of Konstanz the ability to post documents on the Internet in terms of Open Access and functions as a university bibliography listing all publications of the University from 2008 on.

In KOPS you can conduct full-text searches, browse the bibliography and enter your publications either as a bibliographic entry or as full text. All entries are then freely available on the Internet and in the long term. Your publications will also be able to be found in library catalogs, databases, and all major search engines, thus greatly increasing the visibility of your publications.
